Featuring a shocking documentary provided by the Marynoll
Sisters, the program shows how peasant farmers are forced off
their land in Third World countries to make way for large
landowners and multinational agribusiness. By using the land for
export crops, people go hungry because the country can no longer
provide food for all its people. Additionally, the dispossessed
landowners are either forced to work on the big farms at low
wages or to go to the cities where they cannot find satisfactory
work and are forced to live in squalid conditions. The
documentary shows the brutality and venality with which the
established powers operate.
